A generously sized, sheer scarf or stole quickly becomes a go-to piece to take a minimalist wardrobe through spring, summer and fall. This luxurious example in four sizes (small scarf/large scarf/petite stole/tall stole) is graced with a lush foliage motif, bordered with prim leaf buds. The stitchwork is simple and easily memorized, but the effect is lusty and deeply embossed, every leaf surrounded by yarnover highlights. Gorgeous in a smooth luxury blend, this design translates nicely for cool weather in a rustic wool blend or heavier weight yarn (with needle adjustments)
